Is there a way to speed up the process?

For those that want to get their child on track faster then we recommend increasing tutoring to 3 times a week.

How it works...

Using an Orton-Gillingham approach to reading creates new "reading pathways" in the brain. It teaches reading and spelling in ways unique to the ways specific to those with reading disabilities (read more about the research on Orton-Gillingham here).

We follow this research-based Orton-Gillingham approach in the center. Our lessons incorporate techniques that simultaneously activate sensory pathways and create these new "reading pathways." 

 

Children are tutored 1:1 twice a week at times that are convenient for their family’s schedule. This allows the curriculum to be tailored to each child, making small, quantifiable steps. Our professional staff is specifically trained to work with children with dyslexia and learning disabilities.

 

Our program is independent of public school procedures. We serve all children regardless of ability. On average, children who begin the program have achieved a proficient reading level in about 2 years. Often, this instruction improves the child’s self-confidence and their approach to learning.  

 

We take pride in the fact that our model incorporates the latest scientific research in reading and spelling, dyslexia, dyslexia remediation, and learning disabilities.  We are structured to serve a specific population; children with dyslexia and learning disabilities. But, it is not required that the child have a formal diagnosis of dyslexia. Our screening process helps to identify dyslexia and target specific deficiency areas. 

 

Our instructional approach is specially designed for each student. Concepts are introduced using simultaneous, multi-sensory techniques. Children are taught to analyze words using analytic strategies. 

 

Upon identifying areas of need, children will be placed in an appropriate lesson with the right tutor for them. 

Below is a video example of a dyslexia tutor teaching a child a spelling rule similar to how we teach in the dyslexia center. 

Questions about Virtual Tutoring

Does virtual tutoring work as well as in-person tutoring?


Most of our virtual students are achieving the same results as our in-person students. Those children who typically struggle with focus and/or auditory processing may have a little harder time with virtual learning.




What do I need for online tutoring?


We provide all tutoring materials. We ask that you have access to a computer or tablet that supports Google Meets. We also recommend that you have a dedicated learning space where materials are easily accessible, as our sessions move fast, and we use a variety of materials thoughout the session.
